I had a wonderful post all written in my head....

...about how I watered the tomatoes last night and found that, although the neighborhood raccoon had tried to eat all of them, he'd missed a few.

Also about how it was the solstice, and thus how the sun had hung on the horizon for what seemed like forever on Sunday night, lighting the dinner and Rogue that my friends next door gave me.

Also about how the solstice reminds me of watching eagles hanging in midair over the mountains, with sunset not happening until nearly midnight, and the sense of infinite possibility.

Also about how yesterday was full of kittens and dogs and gardens and my basil blooming.

Instead, one of my patients went very, very bad today. It's nobody's fault, but I'll be taking a couple of days off. Because you kind of have to, after a day like today.

I was so happy to hear about the absentminded raccoons that missed a few juicy ones until I read about your patient.

I'm so sorry. I can't imagine how hard it must be to see that happen repeatedly.

Just wanted to say, before I forget, that your blog about organ donation was great. I actually sent the info you posted to several people that had those exact questions.

And my fundraiser is up to ALMOST $2500.00 so that's great too. The prizes keep coming in - people that donate for this wondeful cause stand to win HUGE ITEMS!

Thanks again for your help.
